Massimo Moretti

Magically attracted by the sparks of his father’s grinder, Massimo Moretti grows up in the small mechanical laboratory at home and he delights in building works to aggregate his peers. He graduated in 1974 as an electronic technician and he started developing products. Massimo Moretti collaborates with Research Centers, Universities, R&D Departments, big national and international companies to create industrial automation projects, 3D modeling and prototyping not only in the field of mechanics but also in the interior design, cosmetics and chemistry fields.

In his first 30 years of activity, he filed  for about twenty patents before moving to open source and to the creative commons. His way of working is identified by invention and innovation. In his research path, essential for the product development, he has been approaching 3D printing since 2000.

In 2012, together with a group of young designers, he founded WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project), a company that designs, produces and sells 3D printers Made in Italy all over the world. Massimo Moretti, taking inspiration from nature and from the observation of the Potter Wasp, which builds its own nest with material recovered from the surrounding environment, moves WASP to produce large 3D printers able  to build houses with natural materials and available on the territory, at a cost tending to zero.

The revenue from the sale of 3d printers is invested in the research and development of integrated projects aiming to a production revolution that has the spread of prosperity as its main aim. Research that moves ahead  hand in hand with eco-friendly, bio-materials and sustainable economic models. In order to spread knowledge and tools in an equal way Massimo Moretti takes education courses and increases research in the open source world.

“Small slight thoughts take shape by depositing”

Massimo Moretti usually states; he invents, thanks to 3D printing, innovative solutions every day to meet the human needs: food, health, work, energy, art and culture.
